Break out the orange soda: Kel Mitchell is returning to Nickelodeon on "Sam & Cat."
As HuffPost TV previously reported, the former "All That" and "Kenan and Kel" star makes his return to Nick as Peezy B, a huge rap star who hires Sam (Jennette McCurdy) as his assistant. The gig causes problems for Cat (Ariana Grande), who finds babysitting alone much more challenging.
"I grew up watching Kel Mitchell on 'Kenan and Kel,' so when our executive producer told me he was gonna be guest starring and all of his scenes were with me, the child in me started screaming from excitement," McCurdy said in a statement released to HuffPost. "When Kel first got to set, I was completely tongue tied, but he was so warm and easygoing that it quickly became comfortable and easy. He was hilarious!"
The episode was filmed over the summer.
"Sam & Cat" airs Saturdays, 8 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon.
While Sam is sarcastic, practical, and often a bit of a pessimist, Cat is anything but -- she's the eternal optimist, hopeless romantic, and bubbly dreamer. We think the two will totally balance each other out.
They'll Rock Out Together
Both of these ladies can seriously sing, but we haven't got to see much of their vocal talent on "iCarly" and "Victorious." Although "Sam & Cat" isn't a musical show, we're still hoping to see some duets from the girls -- friends who sing together, stay together.
They'll Get Into Crazy Adventures
This one pretty much goes without saying. And we can only hope that some crazy gymnastics moves are involved.
Cat Will Help Sam Lighten Up
We all know that Cat can be a little, um, ditzy (have you seen her one-handed card shuffle?) but her oddball humor will definitely keep the sarcastic Sam laughing.
Sam Will Give Cat Some Tough Love
We all know Sam has a bit of a tough streak, which we think is just what the super-sweet Cat needs. Plus, Cat can soften her up a bit. Case in point: when Carly once asked Sam why she was her best friend, Sam replied, "Because I'm a lovable person" -- and then proceeded to knock a kid into a set of lockers. Sam will be just the right person to make sure nobody puts Cat in a corner.
Cat Can Teach Sam Random Things
Cat can teach Sam all the random things she knows how to do, like blink with one eye and judge a book by its cover and not pop a bubble.
